Learning Technology Map 2015


Happy New Year! I’m about to post my thoughts on what was hot (and not) about 2014 culminating in my ‘wide angle’ view… the year in video! (2014 was my year of the #GoPro)

Broadly, it reflects what’s passing through my mind that we will see this year. It’s neither comprehensive nor authoritative, but it’s where i think things are heading, so let’s dive in and please excuse the cake crumbs…
